korea. jim maseda joins us from seoul. hi, jim. >> reporter: hi, kelly. well, the past 24 hours have been a pretty good example of the unpredictability of kim junk union and his scene. after all of those signals, it turned out to be a very quiet day in north korea, focused entirely on those celebrations around founding father kim jong il's birthday. but then last night, there was a sudden new threat from the north korean military, which said it would strike south korea without warning if there were another anti-north protest in the south. so this was in reaction to a very small demonstration yesterday here in downtown seoul where a couple of effigies of kim jong un were burned. in the same message, he said the south must apologize for its undig phied acts before talks could happen. despite the angry ultimatum, there does seem to be a shift now towards what they call offramping or tamping down the volume and talking rather than confrontation. that said, those two medium range missiles are reportedly on their launchers in the eastern part of north korea ready to be fired. the south is

phones with them. >> reporter: people are glued to the tv coverage. jim adams managed to get a hold of the entire team in boston. >> you could hear the chaos starting to build with people in the background calling out have you seen my friend, my relatives. >> it's a horrifying situation up there. >> reporter: lee corrigan manages the baltimore running festival, a qualifier for the boston marathon. 30,000 spectators usually gather here. they can expect to see heightened security this year. >> we are no stranger to this. the first marathon occurred a month after 9-11. so, we are at a heightened state of alert. >> reporter: an emergency operation center is set up at m&t stadium as 400 officers patrol the race course. the members could arrive in the wake of what happened in boston. we learned the u.s. naval academy marathon team, all members are safe and accounted for. meghan mccorkell, wjz, eyewitness news. >> thank you. >>> three people are confirmed dead, one an 8-year-old boy. more than 140 people are injured. federal and local authorities are searching an apartment of someone they
attack. good morning, welcome to "squawk on the street." i'm carl quintanilla with jim kramer and david faber live at the new york stock exchange. housing starts beat big, surp s surpassing a $1 million annual rate for the first time since 2008. consumer prices relatively tame up 1.5% year over year. gold after its largest intraday drop on record yesterday and as for europe that they had been the laggard around the world as we saw red arrows earlier in the morning and we'll see if they catch up some of our futures which are improving as the morning goes on. >> quite a session yesterday and people will be looking for some reversals. >> i think they'll take back the 2:45 to 4:00 hit. twitter had it first because the market did want initially react to boston until 3:15. the incident was obviously well before that, and i think you can roll that back because the sense is what's going to happen overnight and that makes sense that people will be worried and the tragedy was the tragedy. hopefully there will be no more and therefore you can take that back a couple of better earnings like a coca
's turn back to the investigation and talk to jim walsh, an international security and terrorism expert at m.i.t. let's talk about law enforcement. what are they looking for now? how do they go about this investigation? take us through some of those steps? and within that, we have to start forming some theories. from what we know already, do you think that it is maybe an individual or probably a group and how do you go about figuring out, is this a foreign group or individual, or americans? >> yeah. those are big questions and there are a lot of them. let me start in the beginning and say in terms of the phase of the investigation, i think there are different parts and different parts of the government are handling different parts of the investigation. so obviously, the most important and immediate thing are those events and evidence that are near the attack. that are approximate to the attack. that includes the crime scene. that includes the material used in the bomb and the process of reconstructing what that bomb looked like. it is designed, the materials it used. the nature of the t
and jim cramer. >> good morning, jim. >> lots to talk about. we account talk about boston and the impact on the market. i would love to hear your view on the psychology there, but also coca cola there. goldman sachs, j&j, we had good numbers. >> coca-cola doesn't have to say anything positive and people absolutely lap it up as they've done for all of the consumer products company and everies single one whereas, goldman sachs they just put a single boilerplate line about what everybody knows which is the macro environment and you're supposed to throw the stock out. i think that is a mistake, and i think the book value is for real. j & j is blessed. he's making it better. j & j and coca-cola, andrew, after boston, hey, you what? i'm take them. it's after boston. boston signifies the psychological terror that people feel when they buy anything other than what's in the supermarket. >> we were talking, i think in the 6:00 hour about sort of is this going to be a major psychological shift that people have come out and says not only a huge tragedy, but it will change the way people think about

's jim acosta just recently spoke to vice president joe biden. let's briefly check in with him. jim, what did the vice president say? >> we caught up with vice president joe biden as he was heading into an event to honor former congressional staffer gabe zimmerman, the staffer gunned down in the shooting that also wounded former congressman gabrielle giffords in tucson. that event is going on now. the vice president is speaking right now. as he was heading into that event, we threw a quick question at mr. biden about the events up in boston, what, if anything, he knows about the investigation. and he acknowledged that the government at this point doesn't have any hard information as he called it in this case. here is what he had to say. >> mr. vice president, any comment on what is happening in boston right now? >> we're going to get to the bottom of this. we don't have any hard information yet, but i can assure you we will find out who did it and bring them to justice. >> no sense as to whether this is domestic or foreign-based. >> not yet. >> and you can hear there as the vice president

[ explosion ] >> run! go! >> reporter: turning the cherished boston marathon into what one hospital official called a war zone. >> i crossed the 26-mile marker and i saw the first explosion happen. there was some commotion. i saw a fire and smoke. and i didn't know what it was. and then from about me to where that gentleman is standing over there, i literally saw the garbage barrel explode. i saw the flash, the fire, the smoke, and i just ran as fast as i could. >> reporter: cameras were rolling from many angles as the force of the blast actually knocks over at least within of the marathoners. look again. most of the injuries, though, suffered by spectators who came to celebrate the finish. >> a bomb went off. and it knocked me to the ground. and then, you know, everybody started running, panickin
. >> now the man you saw standing next to steve, his name is jim. he actually was a trauma nurse in iraq for 18 months. and he said all of those skills that he learned in iraq he used yesterday in boston. john? >> they treated scores of people. they saved, no doubt, scores of people. but they also, elizabeth, watched people die. >> they did. they did watch people die. and so steve who we just heard from, he told me the story one of the first patients he worked on was a young woman. he remembers her, blonde hair, blue eyes, maybe about 20 years old. sh came in and, you know, her leg was broken. her abdomen was open due to the explosion. she wasn't breathing. they gave her cpr. they tried over and over again. they just didn't have a pulse. he said when they were treating her after she passed away, they looked around for some kind of identification in her pockets but he said as far as he knew they just didn't know -- still couldn't figure out who she was. >> so sad. as we said, there are a number of people still in the hospital this morning. 17 in critical condition, 20 in serious condition
on this particular issue to comment on this and on her question of the political will. >> thank you very much, jim. if i knew the answer on political will, i suppose there would be more prophetic qualities to my history. one hopes that we will see it, one hopes that we will see immigration and gun control and other efforts. i spent my life as a diplomat and spent a good part of that life trying to importune other governments to live up to the rule of law. i was cha gripped, embarrassed -- chagrined, embarrassed and, indeed, in many ways felt undermined by the notion that our country which instructed me on numerous occasions to uphold the rule of law particularly indefinite detention without trial was something that we now practice and continue to practice despite all of the questions that people tend to want to raise about a war and prisoners of war and all of the rest. my sense is that we need a specific way forward. the report contains recommendations on a specific way forward; simply trial or military commission with rights and privileges equal to our article iii court or system. if that won't
